My daughter learned about the tooth fairy from an older friend or cousin. Since then, she’s been eagerly anticipating her first tooth falling out. I told her she may have a few years to wait, being only 4 years old. Nevertheless, that doesn’t mean we can’t have some tooth fairy inspired fun! These tooth fairy coins are a fun way to use old coins. I’m not sure who carries pennies anymore, since they seem to be obsolete even at garage sales. We found a few around the house that served perfectly for our tooth fairy coins! Using foreign coins would also work well, since many other currencies include tiny coins, perfect for this tooth fairy currency project. The daintier the coin the better!
Has your child lost their first tooth? The childhood event of losing a tooth is often a surprising and exciting occasion. My 4-year-old daughter is very excited about losing her baby teeth and getting her big girl teeth. I told her it will still be awhile before any of her teeth are loose, but that doesn’t stop her from regularly checking her tiny baby teeth. When a tooth does fall out, we will be ready to mark the occasion with this adorable Tooth Fairy Kit and Baby Tooth Album. It has everything you need to make losing a tooth magically exciting for your child!
How To Make Glittery Tooth Fairy Coins
To make homemade stardust bedazzled tooth fairy coins, gather an assortment of small coins and spray them with spray paint. We used pink and blue spray paint. If you want the coins to look authentic but still glittery, skip the spray paint step and proceed directly to step two.
Glitter Makes Tooth Fairy Money Sparkle
Spray your tooth fairy coins with a layer of clear acrylic spray and dust with glitter. We used translucent purple glitter, aqua glitter, and shimmery gold glitter. The very fine craft glitter works best for this. Let the coins dry and flip them over to glitterize the other side of each tooth fairy coin.
For added glitter control, spray both sides of your tooth fairy coins with a final coat of clear acrylic spray. These tooth fairy coins are so fun and super magical! When my daughter finally does lose a tooth, I know she will be delighted to find several of these coins under her pillow. Tooth fairy coins are a great idea for kids who loose a tooth and haven’t yet learned how to handle money. When one of their baby teeth falls out, you can give your kids tooth fairy coins which they can exchange for a prize or treat. Plus tooth fairy coins are more fun than typical money, and definitely more sparkly!
DIY Tooth Fairy Coins Easy How-To
1. Spray old coins with spray paint or clear acrylic spray.
2. Dust each side of your coins with glitter.
3. Allow to dry, topping with a final coat of clear acrylic spray paint.
4. Use for imaginative play and enjoy!
Tooth fairy coins make a visit from the tooth fairy fun and magical!
